This was our third stay in Huijs Haerlem and it was just wonderful and perfect. There is no other option for us when staying in Capetown! The property as well as the owners and the staff made our stay once more so lovely.

Staying at Huijs Harlem in Seapoint, Cape Town, is one of the must stay places. Super friendly, super breakfast and a super view to the Atlantic Ocean. The antique furniture and decoration of each room is living in style. Restaurants, shops and the Atlantic Ocean are in walking distance.
